Fail Forward, Create Opportunity
Walker saw opportunity in every challenge. She earned her knowledge and business experiences from the first day she went from domestic to saleswoman. At each challenge, she met it with creative approaches while never losing sight of her end-goal. When she was refused partnership, she created her own brand. When she almost lost everything in a chemical fire, she chose to reset and expand. When she was refused a major endorsement, she found an even better solution to finding investors. She continuously failed forward and created opportunity out of challenges. She continuously looked for ways to set herself apart. Action: The following are a list of questions I emailed to my weekly business lab of more than 70 members following our online call.
How is everyone feeling. What are you anxious about? Current business support information and resources? What business challenges do you anticipate? How do you plan to solve these challenges? What solutions have you come up with?
We all experience failure at some point in our lives, but it's important to remember that failure is not the end of the road. Instead, it can be a great opportunity for growth and development. The concept of "failing forward" encourages us to take risks, learn from our mistakes, and use them as stepping stones towards success.
By embracing failure and using it as a learning tool, we can create new opportunities for ourselves.
We can look at failure as an opportunity to re-evaluate our goals, try something new or simply gain valuable experience. With each failed attempt we make, we move closer to achieving our desired outcome and creating a better future for ourselves.
